A community health needs assessment provides an opportunity for non-profit hospitals to identify needs and resources within the community. Since 2010, 501(c)3 hospitals conduct assessments at least once every three years. As part of the assessment, each hospital is required to collect input from individuals representing the community as well as those with public health expertise. The following report outlines the process undertaken by Hegg Health Center in Rock Valley, IA to fulfill these requirements. Hegg Health Center conducted this Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) partly as a collaborative process with three other hospitals and the public health agency in Sioux County, Community Health Partners of Sioux County. This group collaborated on the previous assessment conducted in 2019.
